    If it is just English ivy, not poison ivy, then you can kill it by cutting the stems close to the ground. The plants will not survive without their root system to provide water and nutrients. Once they have died you will have to pull and prune them out of the trees and then maintain them to control their growth.

    If it is poison ivy, a Hazmat suit and RoundUp will also do the job. Or a goat, which I have been told love to eat poison ivy. And anything else within reach.

    Round up doesn't kill them. I know. I have been battling english ivy for 40+ years. You have to pull up the plant root and all. The best poison is vinegar weed killing solution. I jug of vinegar 1 cup of salt and tablespoon of blue Dawn dish washing liquid.

    I use roundup. I cut the vine leaving about 1 foot of the vine still attached to the root, then pour a mixture of roundup and water in a plastic water bottle and stick the vine in the bottle. The vine "drinks" the mixture and dies. Works well on kudzu too.

    I killed a morning glory that took over my raspberry patch by gathering up as many of the vines as I could and stuffing them into a black garbage bag. I then sprayed roundup all over them in the bag, sealed it and left it lay in the sun for several days.

    Roundup can cause many serious health problems. It will get into your well water, as does all weed killers put on your lawn. It should be taken off the market.
